January Pictures

I read that letting ice cubes melt in dented carpet spots and then vacuuming after it was melted would help it look normal and it worked! The spots where our couch was after we moved it are gone!

Money found at work: "I don't know if you are single but if so, I would like to kiss you" and then a phone number. 

Brought frozen peas because my ice pack popped and I needed to get a new one - I have since, fyi.

The Powerball was the thing this January. It rose to a $3 billion jackpot. We've never played the lottery before and knew our chances of winning were not remotely high, but we decided to play anyway to say we had a part in this whole crazy thing, and we did not win anything at all. Not even one dollar, but it was still fun to have been a part of this thing.

I used my new Pioneer Woman cookbook and made this delicious pesto pasta. Morgan is the best at making it but this was definitely delicious and I'll use this recipe all the time.

Clemson played Alabama in the college football championship and thankfully, they lost. Roll Tide! And Go Gamecocks! 

We tried Blaze pizza for the first time. It's a pizza place set up like Chipotle. You choose all your toppings for one price (and they have gluten free too!) and they put it in an oven that cooks it in 90 seconds. It was so so fast that we were still finding a table when they called our names.

The girl at the counter said one pizza for one person but we definitely had leftovers and next time would get half one way, half the other way and share. 

I FaceTimed with Brooke and Clayton in Washington! Clayton is getting so big and says words and walks around like a little person! His looks have changed too - he used to look like his dad and now he's mini Brooke. 

We used a gift card to 4 Rivers Smokehouse, a BBQ place. I wasn't very fond of the barbeque itself, but the sides were pretty good and we'll probably go again.

C is teaching New Testament this semester and made this scroll for his students. He printed out 14 pages of the gospel of Mark without chapter and verse notations and showed them what it would be like to read the Bible in this format. He was proud and I think they appreciated the visual. And by the way, he's having a very busy last semester of course work and loves teaching this class. He has fewer students than expected and likes the smaller class.

We were busy this month and ate out more than we should have. Here are our fortunes at Panda.
